Samsarah Morgan Teaches at ICTC Conference

It was my honor to present my worskop “When Baby Becomes an Ancestor at this years ICTC, International Center for Traditonal Childbearing’s Black Midwives and Healers Conference!

 

It is my pleasure to present it here!  I look forward to your comments!

 

 

Being Black in America is hazardous to the health of pregnant women

 

This video shares a good deal of the concerns – we are working to bring solutions.  While we cannot quickly eliminate the racism  – we can provide tools to our community to combat internalized oppression and to provide tools , education and information to support healthy life style choices.

 

That’s our commitment to Oakland’s African American Mothers!
